than that. technology is advanced. they're going the start as close as possible to the event, to the explosions and move out from there. so, my nat data first and then slowly but surely, they'll get through the rest of those photos and video. over time, but it will be weeks. they will have a better sense of what might be connected to other factors, like the bags that they think carried the bombs. so i think it's great, get this now, because it's difficult to be preserved. >> is this, is that an approach that has evolved over the past 12 years? is that not the way they would have approached this before 9/11? before we had this huge investment in intelligence since then? >> first, we simply didn't have access to all this video and photo technology that is ubiquitous today. there are far more video cameras, hotels and restaurants and people are walking around with iphones. the second is a much greater ability to deal with these massive amounts of data and the technology there has improved and the u.s. government and the intelligence community has been on the forefront. >> is the
called technologies. >> from a volunteer perspective and manhunt perspective, what seems circuit to you having two suspects instead of one? >> a couple things. now they're looking for two, they didn't assume it was only two. they will focus on these two but also go into this saying there could be three or four they just don't know that. this will help in a couple ways. one, suggests there's probably communications between these two. if they can figure out how they were communicating, they can help build that case and localize where they were using cell phones with two people. and does raise the possibility there is a little more capability here. two people can do more things than one and may have gone in different directions now. it complicates things for them and in some ways gives them additional avenues to find these two and build a case against them. >> personally, my initial reaction watching the press conference, two suspects, this must be some ideologically motivated terrorism we understand terrorism crime. the next thing was columbine was two guys and i don't know what those guy
in technology from 9/11. pete william was discussing that on our show. the three terabytes of data that they say they have. that's 3 trillion bytes, the library of congress get that over several weeks. in technology circles, what they call crowd sourcing being used to try to take the communal desire to do something and to help catch whoever these perpetrators are. and yet from your experience on these issues, what can they do to speed up that process? that is an enormous amount for investigators to go through. is it not? >> it is. i think if this was just the boston police department, as good as they are, that would be an overwhelming technical matter. because we have the resources of the federal government, i think this is going to be able to be handled a lot easier than it otherwise would have been. it is just a matter of processing it. one of the good things about the age we live in, not only do people have phones that they're taking pictures. there's a the love data embedded in those pictures. time information, other sorts of information about where the mobile phone was. so there is a lot of
, as much as possible with technology and the cameras that were all around that scene. >> i think one of the authorities this morning described this as probably one of the most heavily photographed areas in the country yesterday. just because of this event going on. and they hope with so many lenses pointed and so many different directions, somebody somewhere got something that will be of investigative value. so what they'll try to do with the videos, to the extent that they can, match them up in terms of time. so that they are all registered. so the frame, as you go frame by frame, you're moving in the same time dimension. you're going a second ahead in each one at the same time of day. and then they'll try to look at still photos and try to line those up as well, hoping they can see something there that maybe people weren't aware of at the time. >> all right. pete williams, thank you very much for the latest information on the investigation. let's to go kris jansing. she is at a crime scene focused on about 12 blocks. we've just gotten confirmation of the name of one of the other pe
in this age of technology that they're able to get so much incoming information from so many different sources. on the other hand, as you say, you then have to make sure that you are whittling that down to the right sources of information. >> that's right. in this case on the video front and the photographic front, they've got a huge advantage. they know where the explosions were. you can actually work out from there. krou don't know where the videos and photos came from the public. but in terms of buildings, once you have a picture of anyone suspicious, you move out and you, you know, rapidly moving circles. how long would it take if someone was walking? let's look at that video camera. you try to piece this together. that's what what was done by the british officials after the bombing on 7/7 in 2005 and they were fundamentally able to track them all the way back to their homes. >> kevin, we just learned today the name of the third tragic fatality in this bombing. ling si lu, a graduate student from china studying statistics at boston university. i don't need to tell you the emotions around t
that, there were huge leaps in technology and biometrics and facial recognition system. i can imagine now the state-of-the art is that much further along. i'm sure it will be a big part in helping identify. >> when we talk about this mounds and mounds of evidence, it's really two different crime scenes essentially. we had two bomb sites. are they treating each of these independently or look for commonalities between the two? >> absolutely on the commonalities. think of it in terms of one major crime scene, death scene here, with some of the best technicians in all of law enforcement anywhere. going over the scene meticulously. typically starting in the peripheral and then working in in concentric circles. i'm sure technicians are still there at this point. >> all right. you know, i want to talk a little bit about how these guys are putting this case together because obviously as they're gathering the forensic evidence, at some point there has to be, you know, we're talking about potentially there may with suspects identified or certainly persons they're interested in speaking to. at s
governments in rural governments spending hundreds of millions of pounds. these technologies are not costless. they have to be evaluated in the balance of the entirety of the law enforcement budget and the government budget. and ultimately, if we are spending money on surveillance cameras, that we possibly don't need. if we have enough. we might be taking police off the street. we might be putting roads in disrepair. we could be taking money from the schools or raising taxes. these technologies are not costless. they're not costless in terms of the budget or civil liberties. >> thank you for your time. greatly appreciate it. now more on the investigation and the aftermath. let me bring in congressman keith ellis, the first muslim elected to congress. first i'm sure you've heard the news that dzhokhar tsarnaev has been charged with using weapons of mass destruction in the boston marathon attacks. we're reading through the charges. learning more about what the fbi seized from his room. they described a large pyrotechnic, a black jacket and white cap. the big concern in addition to his brother's
what they did? the unabomber, ted kaczynski was clearly sick. his motivation was environment or anti-technology. christopher dorner who terrorized the city of los angeles and killed four people, he did that apparently because of a grudge against the lapd, which was his former employer. the atlanta olympics bomber, he was an anti-abortion and anti-gay extremist. that's what motived the atlanta olympics bombing. the oklahoma city bombing was a militia-aligned racist. he had all sorts of anti-government motivations. how much should motive matter in responding to a mass casualty attack in the united states? does it only matter if that attack is tied to a larger group of organized people? and this we just experienced means he we should expect more attacks from those who have similarly motivated. the united states has claimed we are at war with a specific organization called al qaeda. but in the boston attack it turns out that as the initial interrogation report suggests, there was no operational relationship between al qaeda and the bombers, if no one assigned them this bombing, no one trained them
, not if, when bad actors get their hands on the same technology that we have, and use it in terrible ways, we really lose our ability to lean on our allies and world bodies and ask them to sanction or punish these bad actors for an unaccountable drone program when the mantra of our drone program is what drone program, right? >> if you have a program that is operating in the shadows, eventually you're going to have problems with it. right now, we use drones primarily as we've been about by the cia to kill al qaeda members. and i use that term loosely. sometimes these are al qaeda affiliates, people inspired by the same goals as al qaeda. well, other countries eventually will have armed drones and they can be using them against human rights activists. and we won't have a lot of moral ground to stand on. if we've been operating in the shadows. it goes back to 9/11. 9/11 happened. it was a horrible incident and the united states wasn't exactly prepared to deal with it. the military had plans for conventional war. didn't have plans for defeating a stateless organization that was more or less b

that can go on as well with the way that this is developing. >> what kind of technology do they have that -- that could help them with this? i mean, when you talk to any investigator, any district attorney, they talk about the effect of television programs where the technology is so much more sophisticated than in real life but what about things like facial recognition? >> well, i think that's key. agencies like immigration and customs enforcement and customs and border protection are huge in a case like this because they might be able to tell you about something, if there was reason for some person to be a foreign visitor or foreign traveler, but facial recognition software, you know, when it's in certain places, airports or some place, can be upheld, but you don't know how somebody might have come or could be a local person so it's only limited. the more value is the digital age. if that praf is photograph is pn everybody's iphone, on the national media and everybody starts calling in. everybody starts calling in. i think it's my uncle freddy. i think it's joe down the street, and

about and propaganda that targets accomplish speakers. i would warn that this technology as you implied is something that is very well-known in domestic circles as well on a variety of websites. although we commonly see it in the al qaeda world, we don't think it's distinctive enough to draw conclusions at this point. >> do you get the impression that the person who made this bomb is trying to cover their tracks? meaning this is not somebody looking for attention, but covering their tracks because they want to do it again or covering their tracks for another reason that they are trying to stay in hiding? >> i think so. i think the lack of a plan of responsibility from outside the u.s. and international terrorist groups or at least of lack of a credible claim starts to make one suspect more and more as hours and days pass that this was an individual or a group operating solely here in the united states. that doesn't tell you if it's anti-government and a domestic group and inspired by al qaeda, but as time goes on, a lack of a plan of responsibility from overseas, you do have to look mor
